Preview: Borussia Dortmund vs. Hamburger SV

Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's Bundesliga clash between leaders Borussia Dortmund and Hamburger SV.

Borussia Dortmund can continue their 100% record in the Bundesliga with a victory against Hamburger SV on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's men have clinched wins from all four of their league matches, while Saturday's opponents secured their first win of the season before the international break with a 4-0 victory over Eintracht Braunschweig.

The win came after a draw and two defeats, while Dortmund's new signings Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have scored five goals between them in the league so far.

However, their goal threat could be needed even more this weekend as striker Robert Lewandowski is expected to be on the sidelines after hurting his knee while on duty for Poland.

For Hamburg, captain Rafael van der Vaart is unlikely to feature for the visitors due to a thigh strain, which could pave the way for youngster Hakan Calhanoglu to take his place.
